Surprise! Cards from Dayf!

I got home late today because I had some birthday shopping to do - her birthday is later this week! The wife and kids were gone to church, but when I came in the house, I had a padded envelope waiting for me. I've been buying stuff off eBay, so I thought it was one of those. Instead, it was a GREAT selection of TribeCards!

There are a lot of very cool cards in here, some from the 60's on up! One of the most unique is the autographed Tom Couston! Dayf is well aware of my loyalty to the now non-Triber Jim Thome, and Couston is the guy who scouted him and got him signed in the first place! Friggin Awesome! There are a lot of other cards from the padded pack that I know I need for my collection, too!

I was originally only going to scan the first group that I put haphazardly on the scanner, but the more I looked through the cards, I just knew that one scan would not do these cards justice! I'm impressed with the variance in years and companies in here, too! Topps, O-Pee-Chee, Bowman, Fleer, Donrus, UD... You name it!

And, there are a great selection of superstars, rookies, hall-of-famers, players I've loved since I was a kid and players I never knew existed. This was a fantastic, wonderful surprise!! Thanks a ton, Dayf!

  1. Hey man, thank you! I've gotten some surprise packages from you that I still need to post... I saw the scout auto and figured you'd like it since I went nuts over my Chipper Scout card.

    I'm looking forward to the continuation of the scratchoff tourney tonight.
